Funchal in May

by Margrette

Me and my boyfriend are about to travel to Funchal on May the 11th for one week. We would like to spend our time quite active and see as much as possible:) Just enjoy our time. Maybe some of you guys living in Funchal would have time to show us around, or maybe have some interesting ideas for us f.ex. where it would be good to go for bicycle trip. I know that area is pretty steep and I didn't actually find much info about Madeira bicycling. Or maybe someone knows an interesting web site within the subject? Another thing is that Funchal has suffered the flood and most of the infos are frome the time before it, so it would be great to have some feedback...I appriciate any ideas or clues:)
Happy travels tou you all:)

I hope you like lots steep hills, because thats what you will find in Madiera. Lots of up and down. Not much really flat ground except perhaps in the sparsely inhabited middle of the island.

It's not a place I would go bicycling...

Re: Funchal in May

by Margrette

Well...I have bicycled in the mountains a lot, and was hoping to find that kind of bicycle roads on Madeira. I can see that it might be a challenge:)
Thanks for the info

Re: Funchal in May

by GrumpyDiver

In that case, I hope you enjoy Madiera as much as we did. The landscape and scenery are stunning, the people friendly, great seafood and of course the fine Madiera wines.

If cycling won't be possible than we will just go hiking and enjoy the views.
I am looking forward to it.
Thanks once again

Travel Tips for Funchal

European Region of the Year 2004!

by Jerelis

The European Region of the Year is an initiative which aims to increase knowledge and recognition of European regional affairs, to make new contributions to regional construction and European integration and, finally, to project the regions designated as European Region of the Year onto the European and international scene, in all their aspects, such as the social, cultural, economic and tourism aspects. The initiative has certain similarities to the European Capitals of Culture, but at regional level.

Every year, two regions are designated as European Region of the Year, regions which must belong to different countries, as is the case of the Balearic Islands (Spain) and the Republic of Karelia (Russia), European Region of the Year 2003, or Kiev (Ukraine) and Piedmont (Italy), European Region of the Year 2005. Any region of the 45 member countries of the Council of Europe may apply to be designated as European Region of the Year. The Autonomous Region of Madeira (Portugal) and the German-speaking Community (Belgium) will begin their tenure of the title European Region of the Year 2004 on 1 January, taking over from the Republic of Karelia (Russia) and the Balearic Islands (Spain).

Madeira will start its tenure as European Region of the Year with a grand fireworks display on New Year’s Eve, at midnight, to see in the New Year.

Maritimo Funchal

by Vincedem

The stadium in Funchal is just next to the tourist area called 'Lido'... So if you are a football fan and on a holiday in Madeira. It's maybe worth to check out if Maritimo doesn't play at home and if you're lucky you could see games against Benfica, Porto or Sporting!

The atmosphere in the stadium is nice and non-violent!

Farmers Market tiles

by salinhopt

This is a centre point for the town. It typifies the architectural period known as the New State (Estado Novo). The facade has a panel of tiles in a semi-circle, two tiled panels at the main entrance and several others in the section devoted to fish.

Pasteleria's

by myriam_c about Pasteleria's

Do have lunch or afternoon tea at a pasteleria. It's a bakery shop where you can sit and have coffee or tea with sandwiches, stuffed croissants, scones, cakes, gateaux, ice cream and much more.
We've tried a few and they were all excellent!

Cathedral Interior

by sandysmith

The interior of the cathedral is quite dark too - i found it difficult to pick out the carved wooden ceiling - need more light and binoculars to see the animal and flower designs up there. The main thing of interest to me was the choirstalls. Here the apostles are painted in gold, which against the blue was a good contrast, and garbed as prosperous Maderian sugar merchants! The underside of the choir seats also have inticate carvings - such as monkey and pigs.
